    hey guys, i'm new to this forum so bear with me.
    i have an ipod touch 32gb that i got for christmas and i recently jailbroke it about a month ago when the jailbreak came out.
    last night i was surfing the web and came across a different firmware for my ipod and i downloaded it and restored my ipod with that firmware. (i know stupid.)
    but i tried to turn my ipod on and nothing.
    then i put it into DFU mode and itunes will recognize it, i tried to restore from the first firmware i have on my computer but it doesn't work because itunes said the ipod wasn't working or something, and i also just tried restoring it but itunes said i needed to upgrade my itunes program but it's already the newest one out.
    when i try to use the boot.bat file or even the jailbreak.bat file it won't recognize it in DFU mode.
    i don't know what i did but i need to fix it.
    please please help me.

    It is really hard to actually "brick" your ipod, Ill buy your ipod for 50 bucks :]. Ont he more Helpful side, Did you try to download a firmware and use that?

    it would help to know which firmware u downloaded and from where ( not the link ).. but its next to impossible to brick your ipod. The fact that itunes recognizes your ipod means that its not bricked, and that theres a software issue somewhere. I suggest trying to restore to 2.2.1 non jailbroken firmware, (on a different computer) which u can download from itunes.
